Community Cookout at MissionVillage

July 15th, 2020 Posted by News No Comment yet

Another successful community cook out took place last week with @missionvillage !
We are so happy that we are having the chance to cook for those in need every other week!

Last time it was ratatouille! This time we prepared fajita from scratch with roasted potatoes and Fattoush! The smell was so good that everyone started craving fajita by the end of the day!

We can’t thank out volunteer enough for their hard work and who worked on peeling, chopping, cooking, cleaning and washing dishes non-stop from 9.15 till 3pm!

كمان اليوم كان كتير ناجح طبخنا ليلي منحبن مع جمعية mission village !
نحنا كتير مبسوطين انو عنّا فرصة نطبخ للناس المحتاجة تقريباً كل أسبوع!

هيديك المرّة حضّرنا رتاتوي! هالمرّة حضرنا طبق فاهيتا مع بطاطا مشوية وفتّوش! الرّيحة كانت كتير طيبة لدرجة الكل صار عبالو فاهيتا بآخر النهار!

ما فينا نشكر المتطوعين كفاية يلي شتغلوا بالتقشير، التقطيع، الطبخ، التنظيف، وغسل الصحون بدون توقّف من الـ ٩:١۵ صباحاً للساعة ٣ بعد الضهر!

Packing Days at Foodblessed

July 15th, 2020 Posted by News No Comment yet

All packing days at FoodBlessed are special but this Saturday packing day was EXTRA special! In addition to prepping a whopping number of 166 food boxes (ALL thanks to our DONORS), we had some special volunteers with us from @brummanahighschoolofficial 😊
We all know that all events are on hold and this includes school proms. One group of senior students decided to give back to their community instead of throwing a prom party!
That’s why Anna (head of prom committee) & Clara from Brummana high school along with other senior students decided to use their prom money to donate food boxes to families in need. The money donated to FoodBlessed will provide 25 families in need with food boxes.
Stories like these melt our hearts. Good on you BHS students ! Our society need more kind students like you. Very heartening! We also had something special THANK YOU prepared for them. A surprise if we may say and they WERE surprised indeed. Thank you @nourabd our Volunteer coordinator for the bright idea!
 If you’re a senior student& this story inspired you in some way, do not hesitate to contact us! We believe a lot of you can give back to society. Let this year be one where proms actually make a difference to those in need, not just to the people who are graduating high school

Food Rescues

July 15th, 2020 Posted by News, Uncategorized No Comment yet

8 food rescues over a period of 3 days!
A total of 500 sandwiches were rescued from different @zaatarwzeit branches and were delivered to street kids, orphans, elderly, refugees and families in need.
Total NGOs helped 4!
That’s how we spent our weekend in the age of Corona!
We want to salute ZwZ for their food waste free approach in these hard times for choosing to donate their surplus food to those in need instead of letting it go to waste.
What about you?
كان عنا ٨ عمليات انقاذ الجمعة السبت والاحد الماضي.
قدرنا من خلالن تتقذ حوالي ال ۵۰۰ من سندويشة من عدة فروع تابعة لمطعم زعتر وزيت يللي تبرعنا فين لايتام وختيارية واطفال الشوارع وعيل محتاجة ولاجئين.
قدرنا نساعد ٤ جمعيات.
هيك قضينا نهاية الاسبوع الماضي في ظل الكورونا!
منحيي مطعم زعتر وزيت يللي اختار انو ما يخلي هالاكل يروح هدر.
لازم كل المطاعم تعمل هيك.
بتوافقونا الرأي؟

Cooking with The Great Oven

July 15th, 2020 Posted by News No Comment yet

What’s it like to be able to get yourself to cook 2000 meals? It’s an awesome feeling. Nothing feels quite like it 
So, before we met The Great Oven, we thought the @ballroomblitzbeirut is a place where people go to dance; little did we know that thanks to chef @j_gomez_thompson and his gorgeous assitant @nourmatraji, this gem for partying was transformed to a community kitchen filled with art by @shrineon! The ballroom blitz became a place where people gather and cook while music played in the background. These pics are from one of three cookouts that took place in February  And the results ladies and gents are astounding. In addition to the 20+ volunteers who helped peel, chop, and grate unsaleable vegetables that were rescued , a total of 2000 meals were distributed directly to Syrian refugees across six refugee camps in bar Elias, bekaa. In addition to low income Lebanese families, Syrian, Iraqi and Palestinian refugees in the areas of Ain remmeneh, Chiah, 3a2esha bakkar, Ashrafieh and the borj brajneh Palestinian camp thanks to our community fridgges project!
We want to thank everyone who was part of this, specifically our hunger heroes Tina, Zeena, Mansour, Yasmeen, Rawan from @lebamericanuni civic engagement class and Mira! Thank you awesome volunteers. Thank you James and Nour and Shrine for giving us a taste of the magic and for donating the meals to Foodblessed. Thank you @mayaterro for driving countless hours to make sure the food cooked got where it needed to be! More posts to follow!
